You thought “Roses” was fire? Wait until you hear this…
There’s not denying our friends, The Chainsmokers, are doing some amazing things.
Track after track, they produce phenomenal music that has taken the world by storm. From performing “Roses” on Jimmy Fallon to making appearances at just about every major music festival, there’s no slowing down for Alex and Drew.
Earlier this year, we joined the boys on their Friendzone Tour and heard a song that totally cranked. “Don’t Let Me Down” was the encore song that was performed throughout the tour. Alex and Drew claim “this is the best track we’ve ever made,” with the follow up track to “Roses” taking a different approach – focusing on beautiful vocals and strong XX vibes.
The somber initial beat and alluring vocals of Daya start the track off allowing the lyrics to take center stage. As Daya’s heart bleeds on the track, the beat builds and releases with a trap-style tempo. The slow build culminates at the third drop where the music focuses on progressive instrumental elements.
“I’m super proud of it,” Drew Taggart said to Billboard. “I think it’s one of the best songs I’ve written and produced. I think people are going to be pretty blown away by it and it’s very different than ‘Roses,’ which is nice.”
“Don’t Let Me Down” is destined for the top charts.
The Chainsmoker’s ability to capture raw emotion with some of the top pop artists, like Daya, Justin Beiber and SirenXX, allow them to create hit after hit.
One thing’s for sure, they didn’t Let Us Down with this track.
And even more new music is right around the corner. We’re excited to see what’s in store for these musicians who promise to “push things forward and evolve.”
Producers far and wide beware – 2016 is the Year of The Chainsmokers.
